However, it all changed on Thursday night as Osimehn inspired his Napoli side with an outstanding performance, scoring two second-half goals to help Luciano Spalletti’s men stage a comeback against the Foxes in their opening game of the 2021/22 Europa League season.

Speaking after the game, Leicester’s manager Rodgers talked about the quality of the former Nigerian U-17 star.

“We had some players getting their first 90 minutes of the season as well, and then obviously, their big striker (Victor Osimhen), who’s £70-odd-million, so you can see his quality, and he gets his two goals,” Rodgers told LCFC TV.

Osimhen will look to build on his performance against Leicester City, and open his Serie A account when Napoli take on Udinese on Monday night.
